Product Description

BLACK SHEEP - Blu-Ray Movie

Amazon.ca

Chris Farley plays the disaster-prone brother of a gubernatorial candidate in Washington State. Though he is well meaning, the havoc he creates on the campaign trail is drawing press attention, so a snotty aide (David Spade) to the politician is dispatched to keep the big lug under control. Spade's character initially insults his charge as often as possible, but over time, the two bond and end up becoming a part of the final election push. Farley and Spade have some very funny moments, but overall the film feels rushed and poorly planned. Constant changes in character and script happen recklessly and randomly so that nothing ever really makes sense; the film keeps changing the rules by which it plays. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars No, no no!!! July 30 2003
Format:DVD
With the big success of Tommy Boy, people thought they needed another quick hit with both Farley and Spade. Instead, casting Farley and Spade in this bomb does nothing but give the audience hopes, even PLEAS for the slightest bit of comic relief. The film has a couple laughable moments, but some may be laughing more at how rushed and undeveloped the film is than at some corny joke about "chocolate pudding in my underpants." I don't know why this movie is so rushed, by the way; it ends up with a running length of only 86 minutes. And if you ask me, it's the rushing of the film that is its biggest demise. Characters constantly go out of character for no reason, there aren't very many pleasing jokes, and nothing ever does a very good job of getting developed. For example, I got the impression that the film's basic plot was to send Farley and Spade's characters up in a cabin so that Farley's character wouldn't ruin the election for his brother. However, I don't think the two even spend a half hour in the retreat. Also, Farley is much funnier when his character isn't trying to be a nice-guy, role-model type. Actually, that brings up another flaw, Farley hardly ever plays the same character, he goes from charismatic role model for kids to extreme klutz & idiot to rockin' pothead. I love Chris Farley and was very sad to see him go, but for some of his better moments, get Tommy Boy, or maybe even Beverly Hills Ninja. Better choice yet-- buy SNL's "Best Of Chris Farley." It's hilarious, nostalgic, and much more fun to watch than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful movie, but a lackluster DVD March 27 2003
By Jay
Format:DVD
To put it simply, Black Sheep is on my list of Top 100 Funniest Movies Ever. The chemistry between Chris Farley (RIP) and David Spade is unbelievable (not to mention side-splitting). Their performance in this movie is great, and fans will enjoy such timeless moments as "Kill Whitey!", short-circuited headbanging, the nitrous oxide, David Spade being "extinguished," and Chris Farley wearing bunny ears. If you like comedy, this is not a movie you want to miss. Another noteworthy part of this movie is the role of Gary Busey (Predator 2) as a fanatic war veteran with a prosthetic leg who lives in a school bus surrounded by land mines.
As you can see, I love this movie, and give it 5 stars. However, as a DVD I give it only 4. I paid [$$] for it, and what do I get? The movie. And only the movie. There are no special features whatsoever, which is what makes this such a miserable DVD. The persons who compiled this should have taken the time to at least get an interview with David Spade and Gary Busey and put the original theatrical trailer on the DVD. This "compilation" pales in comparison to the modern standards of DVDs. In my opinion though, the movie is so great that it alone nearly justifies the [&&], even though you can buy it on VHS - minus surround sound and French audio - for a fraction of that price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Farley and Spade's Next Movie... March 13 2003
Format:VHS Tape
After Chris Farley (R.I.P) and David Spade's first comedy hit, they made another one together called "Black Sheep". Personally I think this movie is as good as Tommy Boy. Farley and Spade have done it again.
The setting starts out in Washington state. Mike Donelly (Farley) is the goofy, lame-brain brother of Al Donelly (Tim Matheson) who is running for governor. Mike can't stop getting into trouble and it makes his brother look bad as he tries to win the election. So, Al comes across Steve Dodds (Spade) and hires him to watch his brother and keep him out of trouble.
As the two set out to promote Al's canadicy for governor, they get set-up for an arsenal fire by Al's opponent, the current Governor Tracy. So the two are sent out to the woods in the mountains of Washington to hide out. The cabin they stay in is falling apart. The roof flies off during a wind and hail storm and a boulder hits the house.
Will Al win the election? Can Mike stay out of trouble? Find out what happens next. This movie is a top choice for any Farley movie lover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Chris Feb. 9 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I must agree with the prior two reviews. You cannot compare this movie to "Tommy Boy". And that's for two reasons: one, Chris Farley's characters are usually about the same; therefore it is hard to differentiate his movies. And two, "Tommy Boy" was a breakout film for him, his best ever, and you can't expect one man to produce consistency of that caliber time and time again. With that said, you must enjoy "Black Sheep" for what it is. And what is is a hilarious movie.
In the movie, Mike Donnelly (Farley) and Steve Dodds (Spade) are two very different guys. Mike's a laughable fat guy who does everything he can to help his brother Al (Tim Matheson) win his election. Whereas Steve Dodds is a sad crass little man who is given the job of 'servicing', so to speak, Mike on the campaign run. As I'm sure you can imagine the servicing does not go quite as planned. And that's where most of the movie's comedy is generated. Mike makes many attempts to help his brother yet only seems to hurt him. And Dobbs, along with many others, does whatever he can to keep Mike away from the campaign all-together. It's really very sad to see the way in which Farley's character is treated. I'm sure you'll feel bad for him, even if you didn't like the "kill whitey" episode. We all know he didn't mean it.
I, unlike many other fans, show great appreciation for Chris Farley's work in this movie. The director Penelope Spheeris (who brought us such comedies as "Wayne's World" and "Senseless") does a great job in making us laugh. Even if the laughter seems to be a quiet mirth compared to that of "Tommy Boy". But I said I wouldn't comare the two, so scratch that last remark.
I gave "Black Sheep" 4 stars because it is better than most comedies you'll find.
